Oh, Statistics…

A statistician friend of mine just sent me the following quote:

To consult a statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post-mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.” (R. A. Fisher, 1938).

So true. That’s why someday I’ll find the time to get a second degree, in Stats.
